NEW YORK (TheStreet) –– Apple's (AAPL) new iPhones, the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, may continue to add to Apple's lead when it comes to Web traffic, as consumers use iOS devices more than Google (GOOG) Android devices.
According to a study by Adobe and put together by eMarketer, 54% of all U.S. mobile Web site traffic was a result of iPhones, more than twice that of Samsung, its nearest competitor. Samsung, which uses Google's Android operating system, accounted for 24% of all visits to Web sites during the month. Rounding out the top five were devices made by LG, HTC and Motorola.
Customers appear to be responding to Apple's latest iPhones, with the tech giant announcing it sold more than 10 million units in its first weekend. The sales were made despite the company being supply constrained, and despite the fact the new devices aren't available in China, Apple's second-largest market, just yet.
Apple will shed more light on just how many iPhones it sold during the quarter when it reported results in October. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters expect the company to earn $1.28 a share on $37.432 billion in revenue in its fiscal fourth quarter.
Not only is Apple dominating when it comes to smartphones, the company is seeing a massive lead when it comes to Web site traffic on tablets, with more than 80% of the traffic from its iPad tablets. This backs up comments that Apple CEO Timothy D. Cook has made in the past -- customers love using their iPads.
On Apple's fiscal third-quarter earnings call, Cook noted that the iPad Air "registered a 98% customer satisfaction rate, while iPad mini with retina display received an astonishing 100% customer satisfaction rate," according to a survey from ChangeWave. Cook also mentioned that more than 80% of all tablet-based e-commerce purchases came from iPads, according to a study from Custora.
"We're very bullish about the future of the tablet market and we're confident that we can continue to bring significant innovation to this category through hardware, software and services," Cook said on the call.
